USE OF SWAINE WOODS FOR PRACTISING
IF YOU ARE USING SWAINE WOODS TO PRACTICE PLEASE REFRAIN FROM TAKING ANY DRINKS CANS/BOTTLES INTO THE WOODS. WE ARE UNDER PRESSURE FROM CONSERVATION GROUPS AND THE RUBBISH PROBLEM IS NOT HELPING OUR CAUSE. TAKE YOUR RUBBISH HOME. Also remember the rules No Riding and No Engines to be started outside the woods - push your bike on the verge/footpath
This website is run by volunteers and is for the information of club members and any interested parties and is only updated when any results need adding or news or changes occur. If you spot anything getting out of date or would like to make a comment just click 'Contact' on the menu above and let us know
If you are new to trials click on 'Guide to Trials' tab above to get you started. Or - download the CLUB MEMBERSHIP FORM by clicking on the 'Forms' tab on the menu bar above. You need to be a member to practise in Swaine Woods. Click on the 'Links' tab above then choose 'ACU' then from the left hand menu of the ACU page either choose the 'License forms' option if you want the ACU Registration form or choose the 'Online Registration' if you want to do it online but in either case you will first need the ACU/club membership 'magic number' which comes from our club secretary when club membership is paid up.
PERSONALISE AND PRINT OFF your own Champs, N&B and Wednesday evening (but not Centre trials - they are in 'Regs') TRIAL ENTRY FORMS It's much easier for you - saves scribbling one out in the rain at the trial - just click the 'Forms' tab then 'Entry Form'.
The EVENTS are in the 'Events' tab (surprised eh?) and all club trials start at 11a.m. except evening trials at 18.45 prompt. You can print off a one page list to keep in your glovebox by going to the Forms tab above. Stick another on the fridge door so your missus can't complain she didn't know you had a trial on. Remember that the Event List is produced as early in the year as we can but things can change during the course of the year. We will change the info in the 'Events' tab and Events List as soon as the updates are known but we can't change the list on your fridge door so remember to check from time to time. You'll find the most recent update date in the 'Forms' tab.
The Horsforth & District Motor Club has been going for many years now (since 1925). We only run trials events and aim to make them interesting and enjoyable for all members and riders whether beginner or expert from age 4 to over 70. We are proud to boast one of the biggest membership lists around and get some big entries often more than 100 at many of our trials. We also run more trials than just about any other club - 29 in 2013.
We meet at 8.00 p.m. every 1st Thursday in the month at the Horsforth club, New Road Side, Horsforth, Leeds, LS18 4DR. It's perhaps not as entertaining as an hour with Lady Gaga but you are welcome all the same.
RESULTS ON THE WEBSITE - All being well results should be up on the evening of the trial. Exceptions are maybe Wednesday night trials or when Martin is on his jolly's but there hopefully will be a notice when signing on if that's the case (if we remember) so you can write an envelope out and get your results hand written in quill pen on parchment. (We will still get them on the website anyway - there just might be a delay).
If you are new to trials click on the 'Guide to Trials' tab to get you started.
HOW TO GET TO THE VENUES.If you don't know where all our venues are check out our 'Locations' section which now even has a high tech route map that directs you from your home to the venue. Just a word of warning. Although it starts and ends at the right place, sometimes the route to get there can be quite bizarre! Must be the picturesque way.
